Ask a Large Animal Vet and Get Answers to Your Questions ASAP
Good Morning and welcome. I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
It is certainly possible that your girl could be pregnant if a Buck was close by and the gestation period is 150 days. At the end of this, her mammary glands will increase in size. Your vet can Ultrasound her if you want to know for sure.
It is not unusual for goats to appear very large. This is not pregnancy but the rumen becoming larger over time and taking up a lot of space in the abdomen making your girl appear pregnant. This is probably what is happening if there is no buck in sight. This is not a big deal and will not harm your girl...it is a natural process.
Does that make sense to you?
